Krishna De of BizGrowthNews.com and member of the IIA Social Media Working Group interviewed myself and Brendan Hughes of FBD and Chair of the group right after our workshop on the draft guide to Business Blogging on December 5th last. This workshop went very well not least because of Krishna’s great facilitation which ensured that participants gave as much as they got from the afternoon. Unfortunately we had some competition from a bin lorry towards the end of our conversation 🙂
While on the subject of social media, I’d like to draw your attention to what Krishna did here. She has a good quality digital still camera that can also capture video. Nothing fancy. At every event I see Krishna at I will often see her doing quick interviews with participants or speakers about their work, their thoughts on the events or current issues etc. Then she tidies up the video (I’m not sure which software she uses or how long this takes generally.) and it is perfect material for a blog. From a promotional point of view it’s a great way to get your blog noticed. For example this video below has been published in at least three places that I know of and already today has had 39 views on YouTube. Think of that in terms of your blog and how it could help you promote your company or your expertise. For those who are not so literary minded but are great speakers it’s a great way to blog.
